Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden Set to Re-Open!

We’ve waited a whole year for this moment! For their upcoming 35th anniversary on April 24th, Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden will finally re-open to the public with timed-entry tickets.

The garden is over-flowing with spring foliage, the koi are waiting to be spotted amongst the aquamarine water, the Gift Shop has some spectacular new additions and special installations have been prepped…

The new exhibition will take you on a trip back in time where you can celebrate and honor the Garden as it continues to be recognized as a culturally diverse and educational hub for the past 35 years. Enjoy objects and memorabilia from the past such as archive photos, historical newspaper clippings, video displays, and tools used by craftsman while building the Garden.

  • Face coverings reccomdations.
  • A new, easy to follow, one-way route signposted through the Garden.
